2002 News > Universiti Tenaga Nasional students must stay in campus


1st April 2002
BANGI, Sun. - Universiti Tenaga Nasional has decided to make it compulsory for all students to stay in campus, a move that will be fully implemented once the necessary accommodation is built. Tenaga Nasional Bhd and Uniten chairman Datuk Dr Jamaluddin Jarjis said the decision would keep students away from social ills, besides reducing the risk of those staying off-campus being involved in accidents on the way to lectures or home.

"It will also enable them to concentrate on their studies better and help cultivate a spirit of camaraderie and kinship," he said today after launching a seven-day community project by Uniten students.

He expressed confidence that parents would appreciate the move, which is expected to come into force in two to three years' time when the hostels are ready.

At present, only students in their first and final years stay in campus while second- and third-year students have to seek off-campus accommodation.

There are currently 6,000 students in Uniten's Bangi and Bandar Muadzam Shah campuses.

Jamaluddin said the university would come up with 1,000 beds per year and the the tender to build the hostels for this year had been given out.

He said the university might grant exemptions to students who did not wish to stay in the hostels, if there were applications from parents with valid reasons.

"Some parents may want their children to stay with relatives. We can consider giving such students exemptions," he said.

Jamaluddin said for the coming academic session, Uniten had ceived 8,000 applications and would offer 1,000 places for engineering courses at its Bangi campus and 700 for administrative and finance courses at the Bandar Muadzam Shah campus.

Jamaluddin said TNB staff would also soon be able to pursue diploma and degree courses via distance learning under a collaborative effort with Uniten.

"It is important for our staff to continuously upgrade their knowledge and skills, especially in this era of information and communications technology. It will also help improve efficiency at the workplace."

He said TNB's corporate goal was to enhance efficiency and quality of service, hence the need to equip their staff with the required qualifications.

"Only 15 per cent of our staff are executives," he said.

He added that not all of its 25,000 staff could afford to pursue formal education due to work and family commitments.

"Since all TNB offices nationwide are linked via a fibre optic network, we will be using this facility to enable distance learning students to access lectures at their workplace."

He said applications from non- TNB staff would be considered if there were vacancies.

Jamaluddin said Uniten would also be introducing knowledge in Islamic finance instruments as an optional subject in its Adminstration and Finance Faculty.
